Tall and lean - Chamomile has a very athletic build. There is some scarring on her back that appears to be from a burn of some kind, but it’s unknown what happened to this sweet girl. She has incredibly soft ears and endearing eyes that are sure to capture your attention!
Chamomile is adjusting to life at the MPR shelter, but she was previously in a foster home before coming to MPR and was described by that foster mom as a “dream girl.”
Cham must have had a very hard life and the scars go deep, physically and emotionally. We believe she might have been born an outgoing and happy dog, but life dealt her a very bad hand. Since with us, we have seen great improvement already. She is definitly healing her broken spirit and discovering with relief that there are nice people out there.
Chamomile is apprehensive about new situation and certain people she is not familiar with because of the trauma and neglect she suffered before her rescue. Once she trusts you though, she turns into an outgoing and very friendly girl. She's super smart and she loves to have fun.
Behavior with people:
She is incredibly sweet to her loved-ones, even a little needy. She has shown that she favors attention from female volunteers as opposed to men. She doesn’t dislike men entirely, but she is more cautious around them and needs a little time to warm up.
Behavior with children:
She seems especially fond of kids, as if they reassured her and made her feel more at ease. She spend a few weeks in a home with an 8 and 11-year-old and did awesome. Since being with us she has met several kids and seems very eager to connect with them right away.
Note that Chamomile craves to build a bond with a family and she sometime uses her mouth inappropriately. She doesn't bite, but will mouth you to establish that connection. We are working on correcting that behavior and she is eager to please.
Behavior with other dogs:
Behavior with other animals:
Her athleticism makes her a great candidate for some agility work. She likes to play fetch in the yard and has been seen going through the outside tunnel in our training course. Chamomile knows “sit” and “down” and will improve in other areas with consistency. She uses her doggy door to go to her outside kennel like a pro!
She sure is sweet and easy to love. Volunteers are smitten with her loving personality and darling face. While we don’t know
her past or who/what hurt this precious gal, she still wants to forgive and hand you her heart.
